The Eleven Pictures of Time. The Physics, Philosophy, and Politics of Time Beliefs
- In English
This two-day seminar with the Indian scholar C. K. Raju is based on his outstanding book “The Eleven Pictures of Time. The Physics, Philosophy, and Politics of Time Beliefs”.
C. K. Raju played a key role in building the first Indian supercomputer Param, and has long been a Professor of mathematics and computer science. He has worked extensively on the physics and philosophy of time. In “Time: Towards a Consistent Theory” (Kluwer, 1994) he proposed a new physics, using a tilt in the arrow of time which allows future to act on the present. In “The Eleven Pictures of Time” (Sage, 2003) he proposed a new way to relate science and various religions through time perceptions. He has taught decolonized courses, even in math, using zeroism, a philosophy of math used to develop calculus in India, long before Newton and Leibniz.
